10nov12:00 pm- 1:00 pmAndreas Laupacis Health Policy Lecture - From gatekeeper to gateway: normalizing PrEP discussions in primary care


Event Details

Daily oral HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is up to 99% effective in preventing HIV transmission and has been available since 2012. However, of the 1.2 million Americans who could benefit from PrEP, only 1 in 4 are using it, and there are substantial racial and ethnic inequities in use. Dr. Julia Marcus is Associate Professor of Population Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute. In this presentation, Dr. Marcus will provide an overview of PrEP, characterize structural and provider-level barriers to broad and equitable PrEP implementation, and discuss her research on strategies to improve PrEP access, including the use of electronic health records to support PrEP prescribing in primary care.
